Jquery not working with Sprockets in Rails

This is my first attempt at writing Jquery scripts into my rails project. The project is in production with Heroku. I have been stuck for more than 24 hours and nearly going insane. I am able to run bootstrap and bootstrap javascript components just fine. My .scss stylesheets load without any problems.

app/assets/javascripts/articles.js (this is my exact file, do I need script brackets?)

$('#myCarousl').css('border-color', 'red');


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title><%= full_title(yield(:title)) %></title>
    <%= stylesheet_link_tag    'application', media: 'all', 
                                              'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
    <%= javascript_include_tag 'application', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
    <%= csrf_meta_tags %>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <%= render 'layouts/shim' %>
    <%= render 'layouts/header' %>
      <div class="container-fluid">
        <% flash.each do |message_type, message| %>
          <div class="alert alert-<%= message_type %>"><%= message %></div>
        <% end %>
        <%= debug(params) if Rails.env.development? %>
        <%= yield %>

  • I believe you may find your answer in this post.

    Per RailsGuides, Turbolinks overrides the normal page loading process so the "ready" event will not be fired. Try:

    $(document).on('page:change', function () {
       $('#myCarousl').css('border-color', 'red');
